    on my tablet screen is the historical ? graph, I cannot complain about my videos, they're perfect but I'm still trying to get the best auto photos, what do I need to look for and adjust with the right wheel on the spikes graph.

    I prefer to use both the histogram and the "Over exposure warning" i.e. the zebra stripes.

    I aim the camera at the desired direction(s) and adjust the exposure so that important objects just lose their zebra stripes i.e. are not overexposed (usually I let some whitest clouds keep some of the stripes so the ground is not underexposed). I find this to be easier than looking at the histogram.

    I wish I could do this in Litchi because often I use DJI GO just to set the exposure before switching to Litchi. I made a feature request about this but it was not top-priority for the developer.
